Silmaril

That's so close to being absolutely correct that minor imprecisions are pardonable, HI. Your turn.

thank you

To set matters right, here is the correct quotation:

Quote:
Fly away little birds! Fly away if you can! Come down little birds, or you will get roasted in your nests!
And the next one runs as follows:

Quote:
Let us come in! She will lull us to sleep even in the middle of the day

I have no idea where to find a quote that sounds like it could be right - can you give a clue, please? I've 'translated' the first part thus: "Make them go out! He won't wake them..." Is that close?

clues

One person was proposing to another to take his turn on duty in his stead. There was more than mere altruism behind the proposal

Guess it out quick or else I myself may forget the original...

well, well, there was a deadly foe [unexpectedly] dead in battle not long before the conversation took place, but matters were not resolved as it was expected, so more 'foes' (commas intended) came around.

HI, I'm trying to figure this one out, but I've paged through passage after passage without finding it. Can you give a clue as to which of the 6 LotR books it's in? That would narrow the search down!

LoTR? Whos said it was LoTR? Ah, wrong book altogether...

Dwarf and 'human' (commas intended again). In the book I quote the most

ah, and 'human' does not mean that he were, say, a wizard. Rather, one who would not need to stoop to shake hands with a dwarf, rather the opposite, dwarf would.

Ok, ok, no I almost said it, I can as well go and say that conversation took place between:

Hobbit and dwarf

For you, of course it's easy! I was just hoping I might tempt someone else to try their hand at it, but without you, this thread is dormant...

hmmmm, Sam says "handsome is as handsome does" to Faramir, but that quote lacks the addition of "as we say in the Shire", so I guess I'll have to keep on looking...

Ah, my second guess was the right one then. This time, it's Pippin, speaking of Strider, whom Frodo thought "looks foul and feels fair". Which goes to show that looks aren't everything!

That's close, very close, Saucy, but the one I chose precedes that one - a prophecy of sorts...

I've skimmed all three of those books and still can't find anything close to what I think it should be. Another clue, please? Perhaps where it takes place?

As Frodo is allegedly derived from Norse Frođa, I gave myself liberty of opposing to him Loki. So, hint is = the reversed quote is what Frodo spake

Question I believe I have it...

"No, and I don't want to", said Frodo. "I can't understand you. Do you mean to say that you, and the Elves, have let him live on after all those horrible deeds?"

Frodo to Gandalf, in The Shadow of the Past.

LOL, sorry to send you running! But things were dead in the Quotes forum, and I don't mean dead in a good way, like it should be here on the Barrows...

Next one up:
